Football team adds offensive coordinator
Ryan Anderson, offensive coordinator at Western New England University since 2010, has been named the new offensive coordinator for the Hamilton College football team.
As the offensive coordinator at Western New England (WNEU), Anderson helped guide the Golden Bears to their best record in team history at 10-2 in 2011. WNEU captured its first New England Football Conference (NEFC) championship and the Golden Bears made their first NCAA Division III championship appearance.
The offense set numerous program records in Anderson's two years at WNEU, including total offense in a game (688 yards), total offense in a season (4,105 yards), points in a game (66) and points in a season (341). In 2010, the Golden Bears ranked second in the 16-team NEFC and 15th in Division III with 246.9 rushing yards per game. Anderson coached a total of nine NEFC Boyd Division all-division players on offense, including the 2010 NEFC Boyd Division Offensive Player of the Year.
“Ryan is an innovative and energetic football coach,” head coach Andrew Cohen said. “He will bring a lot of knowledge and prior success to our program immediately.”
Prior to WNEU, Anderson served as an assistant football coach with Gettysburg College where he worked with receivers and running backs from 2007 to 2009. The Bullets ranked fourth in total offense in Division III in 2009.
Anderson graduated with a bachelor's degree in policy management from Dickinson College in 2007. He was a four-year starter at linebacker for the Red Devils, who were the Centennial Conference champions his sophomore and senior seasons.
